    On top of my wardrobe, should I ever need it. Was up there yesterday, it's picked up quite a layer of dust.

    Put it in a climate controlled, air-tight, plexiglass box. When people come through my door it swings down from their left, right in front of their face, with a sign that hangs below it, exclaiming:

    "HOLY **** LOOK AT THE BOX!"

    Everyone is impressed at my box and all the glory it delievers to my household.

    Its in a drawer.

    Hello sir or madam. I am having a cousin in Mother Russia who is having the broken iPod. I was doing the wondering if you could be so nice as to be the shipping your I-Phone box to my cousin. I will pay the included shipping and what you call the tax. I am knowing that you send these rare items to the country of Nigeria often, I am asking that you show some of the sympathy in your heart strings to send this to my cousin in the timely fashion. I am awaiting your reply right now.

    Ballmer will say disgusting! in front of his colleagues, before going to the toilet to ogle at it and wished that he joined Apple instead.

    I just keep it filled with all the random Apple receipts I've gotten in the past. Pretty handy :)

    Well yeah, until a robber thinks they're getting a super cool box and all your receipts are in there. :rolleyes: You know, because these boxes are hotcakes and all.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

    My MBP, iPod touch and iPhone cases are all on top of my bookshelf. My G5 box, however, resides in the basement on a shelf... it's sad down there but I visit it from time to time.

    Why would you do that? It's tiny and you lose resale value if you sell the device and don't have the box.

    How hilariously obnoxious would that be?!

    Mines just sat in my desk draw- my 2G one did as well until it proved to be quite financially useful in selling my original iPhone.
